    “Maestro” - (R; 2 hours, 9 minutes) - Nominated for four Golden Globes, including Best Motion Picture – Drama. Maestro is a towering and fearless love story chronicling the lifelong relationship between Leonard Bernstein and Felicia Montealegre Cohn Bernstein. A love letter to life and art, Maestro at its core is an emotionally epic portrayal of family and love. "This is not just a worthy tribute to one of the greatest figures in the American musical canon, but also one of the finest films of the year." - Rolling Stone. Final showtime Thursday, Dec. 21 at 2 p.m.

    “Cup of Salvation” -  (NR; 1 hour, 30 minutes) - What is truly in a glass of wine? Religion. War. Family. Survival. Lincoln Theater is pleased to present a special event film screening of “Cup of Salvation,” with Aimee Keushguerian, Damariscotta native featured in the film, joining us for a talkback following the film. A father and daughter (Vahe, Aimee Keushguerian) set out to revive the ancient grapes of their homeland in Armenia. They must breathe life into the post-Soviet infrastructure of their country, harvest grapes during war and market their wine globally, from the battle-scarred Caucus Mountains to the clandestine vineyards hidden deep within the forbidden Iranian countryside. Lincoln Theater will be offering 5 of the film’s featured wines – Keush Origins, Keush Rose, Keush Ultra Blanc de Noirs, Zulal Areni, and Zulal Voskehat. Wine will be available by the glass at $8 each, and a tasting option of all 5 wines will be offered for $15. And don’t miss the special dinner and wine services being offered in support of the film by both Bred in the Bone and Damariscotta River Grill. Please contact the restaurants directly to make your reservations. Playing Thursday, Dec. 21 at 7 p.m. Film tickets: $12 adult and $9 members. Presented in partnership with Bred in the Bone, The Damariscotta River Grill, SoPo Wine Co., and Salt Bay Trading Co.

    “The Holdovers” - (R; 2 hours, 13 minutes) -  Nominated for three Golden Globes, including Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy. From acclaimed director Alexander Payne, THE HOLDOVERS follows a curmudgeonly instructor (Paul Giamatti) at a New England prep school who is forced to remain on campus during Christmas break to babysit the handful of students with nowhere to go. Eventually he forms an unlikely bond with one of them — a damaged, brainy troublemaker (newcomer Dominic Sessa) — and with the school’s head cook, who has just lost a son in Vietnam (Da’Vine Joy Randolph). Playing at 2 and 7 p.m. Friday, Dec. 22, Saturday, Dec. 23, and Wednesday, Dec. 27; plays at 2 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 28.

    Great Art On Screen - Borromini and Bernini: The Challenge for Perfection - (1 hour, 42 minutes) - A journey into the great beauty of Baroque Rome, when the city was the centre of western art and where every ambitious painter, sculptor and architect had to be. This is the story of the most famous artistic rivalry of all time, the one between Borromini and Bernini, but also the story of Borromini’s rivalry with himself: a genius so absorbed by his art that he turns it into a demon that devours him from the inside forcing him to choose death to reach eternity. Borromini deprived himself of everything to pursue a dream: to conquer Rome. It is the story of the architectural revolution of a solitary maestro who changed the appearance of Rome forever, by pushing himself to his limit, but also by battling conventions and prejudices, with the humility to learn from the past to invent the future, with the courage to pursue an idea despite knowing he would pay the price in the end. Playing Thursday, Dec. 28 at 7 p.m. and Friday, Dec. 29 at 2 p.m. Tickets: $15 adult, $13 members, $5 youth 18 and under.
